Redemption

The Story Behind the Song
I have witnessed more than my fair share of the cruelty people can deliver to one another. This is a song about an assassin, a professional killer. “12 in the clip, 1 in the pipe” refers to having 12 bullets in the magazine of a semi-automatic pistol and 1 bullet in the chamber, ready to fire. The assassin is totally immersed in murder, drugs, alcohol and debauchery. He’s living out the seven deadly sins. And yet, even he is saved, redeemed; pulled out of the 9th ring of hell. Who pulled him out of the hell he was in? That is entirely dependent on what you believe in.

Song Lyrics

Living on the edge of a knife
Whiskey, bullets, beer and wine
Showing no mercy, just givin’ pain.

I got 12 in the clip, one in the pipe
I’m the dreaded stalker in the night
You pulled me back from that ring of fire 

Out of control you got a hold of my soul
From the ninth ring of Hell,
you pulled me up the well
Past the River of Styx, Lucifer’s fixed
Medusa and Sin
With You, I win

I was a sinner, a gypsy in time
Get a bag, steal a button, shoot a dime
Darkness and sin and bottles of Gin

I had seven deadly sins as a life
No family, friends, lover or wife
You pulled me back from that ring of fire

Out of control you got a hold of my soul
From the ninth ring of Hell,
you pulled me up the well
Past the River of Styx, Lucifer’s fixed
Medusa and Sin
With You, I win
